I've been away from this thread for too long.I'm starting to re-read it. Alison I've also become obsessed with The Book of Mormon I saw it last time I was in NY and it's brilliant.It took me 6 months to get tickets .
I wanted to recommend an Israeli band that I love.They have a pop-electronic but with a heart.
They're called The Young Professionals.The band consists of two members and they released their debut album a few months ago titled 09:00 To 17:00, 17:00 To Whenever.
oh hi this is my first post on Adamtopia! of course it's gonna be in the music recommendations-thread lol, i think i'll be living in this thread from now on. alright.
my first recommendations is a 'musical project' called Steam Powered Giraffe. i found them only a couple of days ago and now i'm obsessed. and this is not the kind of music i usually listen to. this is what their website says about them:
"Steampunk and Futurism mesh together with mime and music to create a breathtakingly imaginative act. [...] The act combines the visual of robot pantomime with sketches, pop culture references, improvised comedic dialogue, and of course, original music.
From their heartwarming nostalgic melodies to their funky cabaret rock, Steam Powered Giraffe's songs are memorable, infectious, and as unique as the robots themselves."
bought the album requiem for the indifferent early this year ,and was able to get to see them live in glasgow 2 weeks ago ,brilliant live ,if you get the chance go , one of the best live bands ive seen this year
A while back Adam recommended a new artist on twitter... ZZ Ward. Her new album, 'Til The Casket Drops' is fantastic. She is like a grittier, bluesier, funkier Adele. $6.99 will get you the whole album on iTunes and it is well worth it.
I kneel in a different direction
And love in an obvious way
I have never expected perfection
Amongst all the gorgeous decay
